Birthday Scrapbook with Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate

Hi everyone, I have a new scrapbook to share!

This special peachy colored book is made with the Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate paper collection.  I focused on the papers that were neutral or specifically for birthdays and ended up with this beauty.

As you can see I fussy cut out two birthday images and hid them among the beautiful Petaloo and Wild Orchid flowers.  The chipboard piece is emphasized by cardstock which also helps to hide the magnet closure.

Here are the 1st page pictures....

This is inside the cover and the first page

On the left I added several flaps and pocket to the inside cover.
Open the first flaps to reveal pockets, pockets and more pockets.

This is the page fully open to the base pocket.
 I used a Kathy Orta tutorial from the Holiday Kit Club #2 (this past Oct/Nov/Dec).  The album was originally called the Witches Brew because of the great papers that Kathy chose to work with at the time.  The album is very interactive and designed so that we can mix and match pockets and pages to actually design our own album.

Here are the pics for Page 2....

All open
The back with tag
I used Chocolate Paper Accents cardstock from Scrapadbadoo and I purchased the Graphic 45 paper at my local scrapbook store, Scrapbook Central (this store has the best selection in BC!).

Here are the pics for page 3 ....

Love the cut outs from this paper collection!
I made 5 pages in this album with a 3 inch spine.  The book measures 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 and is perfect for 4x6 photos.

Supply List:
Paper: Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate (2 8x8 pads and a couple 12x12 pages), Paper Accents Chocolate Brown, Bazzill orange and green
Tutorial: Holiday Kit Club #2 Witches Brew from Paper Phenomenon
Embellishments: Petaloo and Wild Orchid flowers, RRR ribbon

It is time for me to return to entering challenges:

I hope you enjoyed my new mini album.  Do check out the tutorial, the title may be deceiving but the tutorial is excellent!

Have a scrap happy day!
